I had more luck with our bedroom. I found a wonderful bed cover in turquoise and white and pick a light version for the walls and a medium turquoise for the screen frames. It now looks more like a comfortable little beach house here in the bush.
My last project, at this point, was to paint one of the guest bedrooms. My cousin, Roger, will be visiting in a couple of weeks, so I wanted the room to be fresh and clean.
It feels good to get some of these projects done. It's such a sweet, comfortable place and now even more so with the addition of light and color.
